As the economic recovery continues to build in 2014, Americans are again able to invest. And with recent reports from the U.S. Census Bureau noting 34 percent of American households are rental units, investors are taking notice of the benefits of placing investment funds in residential rental properties. “Investor demand for single family properties remains strong,” said Kirk McGary, CEO of Real Property Management, citing a recent study from Zelman & Associates that found investor demand for residential properties ranking at 60.9 on a scale of 0-100. “Trends like this in the housing market have created significant demand for property management companies like ours, as investors choose to put their money in real estate as opposed to the alternatives.” Although there are many investment options available, real estate offers the ability to finance a portion of the purchase price to leverage the initial investment to control an asset valued much higher – unlike stocks, bonds and CDs. With lower interest rates available, a small increase in the value of a leveraged property investment can carry a greater return than an unleveraged investment - approximately 12% according to the same study by Zelman & Associates. Investing in real estate also offers tax benefits, where earnings from CDs, bonds and stocks are taxed. By making deductions from the profit on mortgage interest, cost of property repairs and depreciation, owners are writing off depreciation of an asset that is actually providing increased yearly benefits on a long-term investment. Most importantly, ownership of real property puts more money in the investor’s pocket. Consistent rental income creates positive cash flow, thereby covering the mortgage, home repairs and other homeownership costs. Being able to minimize tenant turnover through professional management also reflects on the bottom line, maximizing the Return on Investment.
